    It's said you should try to avoid meeting the people you admire, as they're bound to disappoint.

    James Cameron Says Non-Linear Storytelling Will Let Sigourney Weaver Return For 'Avatar' Sequels

    Remember that little movie from a couple of years ago called "Avatar"? If you don't, you're probably one of the five people who didn't buy one of the tickets that helped push the movie to over $2.7 billion in worldwide sales. Given that figure, it was inevitable that sequels were put in the works, and while Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana are no brainers to return, fans were a little confused when Sigourney Weaver revealed she would be returning as well. "Don't worry, I will be back," she told ComingSoon last month. "Jim [Cameron] says no one ever dies in science fiction. He's told me the stories for the next two movies and I have to say that...

    Review: A Brooding, Wooden Taylor Lautner Muddles His Way Through The Nonsensical 'Abduction'

    In the future (it’s closer than you think!), celebrities will be an even bigger part of our society. While the pool of “famous people” will expand beyond movie stars, politicians and random public figures, we’ll find ourselves consumed by the public’s thirst for all things mega-famous. In this future, somewhere, someone will write a massive tome dedicated to the forehead of Taylor Lautner. Like the Monolith in “2001: A Space Odyssey,” it is massive, and says everything and nothing. It sits on top of the scrunched up Zardoz-of-a-face that is this curious manchild, at once Cro-Magnon and, yet, every bit representative of his teenage years. It's...

    Teaser Trailer For Rodrigo Cortes' 'Red Lights' Features Robert De Niro Turning Around Slowly

    While many of our writers didn’t exactly love Rodrigo Cortes’ “Hitchcock in a box” thriller “Buried,” it’s hard to deny that Cortes took some inventive turns with the film’s high concept premise. Next up for the director is “Red Lights,” which MTV has the trailer for, and it’s about as minimalist a...

    TIFF '11 Review: Woody Harrelson Stands Tall Amidst Crumbling LAPD In Riveting 'Rampart'

    "Everything you learned at the Academy is bullshit." That's the sage bit of wisdom Date Rape Dave (Woody Harrelson, and we'll get to his cop moniker in a moment) gives a new trainee in the opening frames of Oren Moverman's "Rampart," a searing and riveting look at a crooked cop's decay amidst the cr...

    First Look: Woody Harrelson Proves NWA Had A Point In New Clips From 'Rampart'

    Tonight is the world premiere of "Rampart," currently showing without a distributor at the Toronto International Film Festival. Anticipation is high for Oren Moverman's highly-anticipated follow-up to the excellent "The Messenger," and while Woody Harrelson nabbed a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for that role, three new clips courtesy of THR showcase Harrelson as the lead in what we figured was an intriguing ensemble piece. The film is a period piece that showcases the repercussions of the L.A. Riots on an embattled former Vietnam vet struggling with the responsibilities of the badge, and trying to balance his sanity and questionable...

    Sigourney Weaver Would Like To Make Another 'Alien' Film, But Knows Hollywood Has Aged Her Out

    Actress Says She Feels Ripley's Story Is "Unfinished"Twenty five years ago yesterday, James Cameron's "Aliens" hit screens and turned Ridley Scott's suspenseful sci-fi horror, "Alien," into more of an action sci-fi classic. They're polar opposite films, really, at least in tone and mood, but Cameron...
